The Boss is Watching: How Monitoring Decisions Hurt Black Workers

Costas Cavounidis, Kevin Lang, Russell Weinstein

NBER Working Paper No. 26319
Issued in September 2019

---- Acknowledgments ----

This research was funded in part by NSF grants SES-1260917 and SES-1851636. It draws on similar intuition to Cavounidis and Lang (2015) but greatly simplifies the theory and adds an empirical section testing the main new prediction. We are grateful to Cheonghum Park for excellent research assistance and to Gautam Bose, Sambuddha Ghosh, Larry Katz, Ed Lazear, Calvin Luscombe, Ioana Marinescu, Derek Neal, Marina Soley-Bori, Bill Spriggs and participants in seminars and conferences at Boston University, Cornell, IZA/OECD, NBER, Tufts, the University of California, Riverside and West Point Military Academy for helpful comments and suggestions on this and the earlier paper. The usual caveat applies. The views expressed herein are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Bureau of Economic Research.
